OUR PHILOSOPHY

Raising The Standard Of Using  Psychographics In Market Research

Most companies believe they do this by asking a few questions on attitudes or interests. But there's so much more to a person's psychological profile that that. Our approach to psychographics provides a 360-degree look at the customer, so you can gain the best possible insights for a competitive advantage in your industry. 

WHITE PAPER

Marketers Are Missing The Most Important Thing About Their Brand Trackers

Most marketers only focus on one side of their brand tracking metrics (those metrics that never seem to change between waves). But there are two sides to every survey question:

  1. What you learn about the question
    • This is what marketers focus on (e.g., brand awareness is 75%)
  2. What you learn about the consumer
    • This is what marketers SHOULD focus on

Go ahead and download our white paper to find out what your brand tracker really tells you about your consumers.

ABOUT:

Employees are a company’s biggest asset. They are the ones often interfacing with customers and therefore foster the relationship between the customer and the brand. To make sure you’re continuing to keep your brand ambassadors, employee engagement surveys allow employees the chance to voice what they like and what they don’t like about a brand’s internal culture. Identifying internal frustrations and barriers is key to eliminating potential drivers of employee churn.
